Employee volunteering

If you are interested in getting your employees involved in corporate volunteering in tree planting, woodland management, orchard creation and more across Greater Manchester – we can help.

Bruntwood planting day

Taking part in practical activities as a group is a great way for employees to experience team-building in the great outdoors, whilst making a real difference to the environment, wildlife and local communities.

We have two different ways in which your employees can get involved in City of Trees:


Join in at one of our Citizen Forester events

City of Trees bespoke corporate days

Perhaps you are looking for a bespoke green corporate CSR team away day for your company, or business - this could be for your employees or clients. 

Over the course of a day, on a date of your choosing, your staff or clients will learn fun practical new skills whether it be tree planting, orchard creation, woodland management, or building bat or bird boxes.

We will work with you to meet your requirements, putting together a tailor made programme taking into account the season and your organisational priorities. We can even combine outdoor activities with indoor staff development sessions you may organise.

Our bespoke away days are £50 per person (minimum of £500 spend), including lunch, all equipment, facilities plus free goody bag. If you decide to make a donation, offer pro-bono support or work on a project with us then we may be able to offer your company a free bespoke green corporate away day as one of the benefits of supporting us.
